Spring forward for Daylight Saving Time today

For a while, we cared about what o'clock it was, but that was when we had to know when to turn on our favorite TV shows. States are not required to observe time changes, but those that do must spring forward and fall back at the same time. Your body is expecting a normal 24-hour day, but you suddenly experience a "shortened" day.

One ad read, "If you think you're in the dark now, consider what Daylight Saving Time will do". Just how long ago was it enacted? We go into work, work for a while, go home when the work's done.

The idea of daylight saving was the brainchild of Benjamin Franklin, aka, the "early to be, early to rise" guy, back in 1784.

Exercise several hours before bedtime, not right before bed. I used to be of the mindset that if I only had 20 minutes it wasn't worth trying to sleep but trust me this little catnap can make you feel like a completely different person.

Daylight Saving will end November 5.

And that is why, as much as I love it, I will never live in Alaska. I am convinced of this. And I am certainly cranky. One can not be more certain of any fact.

Villanova Wildcats Shuffle Off To Buffalo Early For NCAA's
Troy , the No. 6 seed in the Sun Belt Conference tournament, took down Texas State, 59-53, Sunday to claim the conference title. They will be out to defend their 2016 NCAA Championship, and the road starts Thursday against the victor of Mount St.

The pair launched a grassroots movement, which saw them face-off on public radio and television against drive-in theatre owners who anxious the change would hurt their bottom line. And, having repeated this observation the three following mornings, I found always precisely the same result. The time change changes the body's chemistry and increases blood pressure putting some people at risk of medical problems. While Willett may have traveled on, his ideas continued his legacy. The state Legislature also said no to daylight saving time five times.

However, it is not observed in Hawaii, American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands and the state of Arizona, with the exception of the Navajo Indian Reservation. And if so, which one, standard or daylight?

Proponents of Daylight Saving Time continue to point to the benefits of an extra hour of sunlight. The U.S. Department of Transportation says that under the Uniform Time Act, as amended, states can exempt themselves from observing daylight saving time by state law. This move marked a spot on the calendar for the last Sunday in April and the last Sunday in October. The best thing to do during this time of year is to not nap. That was confusing, because the time varied then from state to state, not just time zone to time zone.

This status quo of setting and resetting clocks has been kept in effect ever since with most people around the world accepting the inconvenience as the way of the world.

"Let's give this to the people, to the voters, and decide if we should keep changing our clocks every six months", Pabon told CBS4. Nigerian), Sunday, March 12, 2017, clocks are turned forward by an hour to 3 a.m. (9 a.m.
